NDIS Interpreting and Translation
Find a list of NDIS Interpreting and Translation . There are currently some Interpreting and Translation providers offering a range of services.
Some Australians with disability are from backgrounds that are culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), and are unable to effectively communicate with providers on their own. These individuals now qualify for interpreting and translation assistance funded by the NDIS, which has partnered with Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) to deliver these supports. The goal is to ensure that information about NDIS supports can be easily understood by all participants, regardless of background.
Administered by the Department of Home Affairs, TIS National provides interpreting services to Australians who prefer to communicate in their native language. Its services are also available to businesses that have dealings with people who communicate in another language.
The Interpret/Translate registration group provides supports for three types of interpreting services:
- immediate phone interpreting
- pre-booked phone interpreting
- on-site interpreting
